This AMA session is over but you can still ask questions to Marcy Sutton on their Hashnode profile.
Hey Marcy! thanks for hosting the AMA...
I'm interested in knowing how modern CSS affects accessibility.
With things like flexbox and grid layout, the visual layout can be completely different from the DOM tree and can really mess up with accessibility functions like screen readers.
Do you think as we are going advanced with our layouts, we are making web less accessible?
"I learned we can all make a big difference on the web for people with disabilities by designing and developing inclusively." I can't agree more.
There is so much being written on Progressive Web Apps, Mobile First Design; but there is a serious lack of content when it comes to "Accesibility First Design"; what do you think of it?
What are a few things that can we do to design websites that are inclusive to blind people?
How to decide how disabled users would like to interact with computers and smartphones?
For example: In mobile apps, do blind users want an explicit “close” button for a small non-modal dialog (tooltip), or is it enough to have them find the area “outside” the dialog using browse by touch, which they can then tap to dismiss.
Good to see you here. I have read most of your article on Egghead.
My question to you is : How important do you think accessibility is in this IoT era? Do you think web developers who generally skip accessibility factor while developing web apps are committing a huge crime?
